Wow, thank you for this article. I like to think of myself as a pretty open minded, compassionate person who has always been LGBT positive and am even fortunate enough to be friends with a few transgender people. I know, I know that last part is kind of a lame straight guy thing to say, but even though I am very “whatever helps you become more fully you is just fine with me,” I admit I have been on the fence with the should/shouldn’t disclose issue. Your words have helped me to broaden my perspective and look more closely at the nature of relationships, secrets, biases, and my own insecurities and remind me that things are very rarely black and white. Thank you for that.
